BKPKK Project Kick Off in Pasay and Makati


 

 

 

This August 2016, TESDA PASMAK reached out to the Barangay Captains, kagawad and zonal leaders in the cities of Pasay and Makati to start the profiling of barangay residents as basis for the implementation of the BKPKK or "Barangay Kasanayan para sa Kabuhayan at Kapayapaan", a new TESDA flagship project in support to the national government's poverty reduction program.

Last August 12, the 201 barangay captains and their Kagawad were assembled at the Cuneta Astrodome for the BKPKK project orientation and discussion on the surveys to be conducted for barangay profiling. The project kick off for the Makati City were held separately at one of the barangay halls in District 1 and 2 for the 33 barangay captains and its zonal leaders.

Lending their leadership to those assembled were Congresswoman of Pasay City Emi Calixto-Rubiano, Vice Mayor of Pasay City Noel Del Rosario, Congressman of the 1st Congressional District of Makati Monsour del Rosario and representatives from the DILG.

Mr. Marty of TESDA PASMAK presented the full project brief and how TESDA can potentially enhance this situation by developing further the qualifications of Pasay and Makati City residents through its TVET programs.

The barangay leaders were trained on the mechanics of the skills mapping survey instruments. This also provided a great opportunity to pilot test the survey form on the community leaders in attendance. The activity provided an avenue for clarifying items that might later be asked during the full deployment of enumerators.
